Subject [users@httpd] proxy server slow for certain sites
Date Fri, 24 Jan 2003 17:17:49 GMT
I recently installed apache-2.0.43 on a Tru64 v5.1 system.  While testing
the proxy server function, I found that some sites (, for example)
stall in the middle of loading, causing the page to take over a minute
to load.  Because a google search didn't find many recent complaints of
hanging, stalling, or slowness with the proxy server, I assume that I
must have something wrong with my setup.   Below I have included the
relevant section from the httpd.conf file.  I also tried the default
setup in httpd.conf, using port 80 and only allowing access from a subnet,
with the same results.

<VirtualHost ###.###.###.###:3128>
ProxyRequests On
<Proxy *>
    Satisfy Any
    Order deny,allow
    Deny from all
    AuthType Basic
    AuthUserFile /usr/local/httpd/conf/users
    require valid-user
#    SetEnv force-proxy-request-1.0 1
#    SetEnv proxy-nokeepalive 1
ProxyVia Off
HostnameLookups Off
ErrorLog logs/proxy_error_log

The commented lines, lifted from the mod_proxy documentation, did not improve
the problem.  Apache reports no errors during the hangs and below is a sample
of the debug output during one of the hangs.

Does any have any suggestions of things that I can try in order to improve
performance, or other documentation I could read?
